The problem with rumors

Everyone loves a good rumor. Its something about the excitement of the secrecy, that you may know something before your supposed to, that somehow you are special because you know something that other people don't know.

The problem is, if the rumors are right, people get worked up in advance of the actual announcement of the news, and lots of additional speculation happens that is typically not helpful or productive.

If they're wrong, then people get all worked up over nothing. And sometimes people get hurt in the process.

I've heard so many rumors lately. I'm trying to stick to the facts, because frankly, I just don't have the time or energy. It's really hard not to get sucked into the speculation, though. Sometimes the fantasy of what might happen is better than your current reality. Unless its worse. Either way, how much time would I be wasting on speculating, when I could actually make things happen. Better to do than discuss.
